This page lists the youth hostels currently and previously operated by the Youth Hostels Association (England & Wales) (YHA). The list is split into two sections, hostels currently operated by YHA and those previously operated by, or as part of, YHA some time since the creation of YHA in 1931. The primary sources for these lists are given in the references section.
